I know it has been a while since I've posted, but I've got a good excuse: I've been really damn sick. And on that note, why don't we talk about training through sickness? Or when not to train through sickness? The typical advice is usually: if you have symptoms above the neck, you're okay, but anything below the neck is a no-go. While that's good advice, I'm going to tell you how I personally handle it as well as how I modify training (or don't modify training). Clickable link in Bio.
So I missed my deadlift session entirely this week. The footage here is from two separate bench sessions. Obviously, I wasn't feeling strong going into either session being sick and six weeks deep into an accumulation block, but, hey, you post the good and the bad.
Max Legal Grip Bench: 140kg/308lbs x 4 @ 9.25
4-1-0 Tempo Bench: 130kg/286lbs x 4 @ 9.75
Shout out to the Hawaiian Tom Cruise @krkw5 a.k.a. the greatest hype man on earth for the spots during BOTH sessions.
Thanks to Powerlifting's Gandalf a.k.a. @ben.rice.10 for inspiring me to not make excuses about content creation and keep it rolling despite being sick.
